What is CBD?
When you hear the acronym, CBD, it's likely you associate it with cannabis. That makes complete sense because it is a naturally occuring compound in that plant. That being said, there still is a lot of confusion around exactly what it is and what it does.
CBD stands for cannabidiol and is one of 85 identified compounds in the cannabis plant. Another popular one you've likely heard of is THC. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychotropic and therefore doesn’t cause that "high" you get when using a marijuana product that is high (no pun intended) in THC content.
All our products at King CBD are produced from hemp cannabis plants that are high in CBD with minimally traceable amounts of THC. This means they are 100% legal in all 50 states under the 2018 US Farm Bill. CBD is known to benefit in many ways and assist in a variety of medical conditions including anxiety, insomnia, depression, inflammation, and acute pain. CBD is a safe and legal natural option for all ages.
You'll also see the term "Full Spectrum" which is when the hemp oil is extracted using a special process that yields highly concentrated CBD that also contains other nutritious material such as omega-3 fatty acids, terpenes, vitamins, chlorophyll, amino acids, and other phytocannabinoids like cannabichromene (CBC), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN) and cannabidivarian (CBDV).
That may be a lot to digest so don't hesitate to reach out to us directly with any questions. We are here to help as you learn more about CBD and all it can do for us.
